Current work: Medical (and counting down to holiday)
Listening to: Still Def Leppard
Reading: next on TBR (am saving them for holiday, actually, as all reading time has been transferred to work time during school hols)
Went to see Ice Age 3 (3D version) yesterday. Animation was very good and I have a soft spot for Ray Romano anyway. I really enjoyed the character of Buck: Simon Pegg did an excellent job of the voiceover.
Spent the afternoon playing cards and board games with littlest while eldest did his ‘I am almost a teenager, I am bored and antisocial’ act and played the X-box, claiming that board games leave him bored. (Tres droll. Not.)
Work? Cue hollow laugh. Must try harder today.
Had a bit of a CD binge yesterday. An 80s rock compilation (if only the Supernatural producers would do a soundtrack – I would definitely buy it); Def Leppard’s Slang (listened to it on YouTube and it’s very different – feels quite fresh, and I can see why DL fans loathe it but I find it musically interesting); and Einaudi’s Divenire, real chillout stuff (might see if I can beg that one for the car on hols, though DH will probably complain that it’s dull).
Plan for today: take the kids to see Dad, then take the kids to see MIL, possibly lunch out somewhere, library to return books and pick up a research book, pick up prescription from doctor’s surgery (ha ha, the joys of an underactive thyroid – and this was my last repeat, so that means I’m due a blood pressure check and blood test, lucky me)… and then more board games until DH comes home and I can go back to work.
